Join us for a night of joyous music and dancing with Cortadito, one of the premier Cuban music groups in the US. They will be joined on stage by Latin legend and Grammy® winner Nestor Torres. Known as the Buena Vista Social Club of Miami, Cortadito focuses on performing the traditional music of 20th century Cuba. From son montuno, guaracha and bolero, this dynamic ensemble brings you back to a time when Trio Matamoros, or Ignacio Piniero ruled the airwaves – a golden era when popular music across the world was Cuban music. Led by musicians Jose Elias and Julio Cesar Rodriguez Delet, the group has performed all over the US, including performances with Eliades Ochoa, original member of world-famous Buena Vista Social Club.
International flute sensation Nestor Torres is known for his engaging, fiery and inspiring performances. A Latin Grammy winner and nominee, Torres has collaborated with Dave Mathews, Herbie Hancock, Paquito D’Rivera and many more.
